Dan Kitchener

Dan Kitchener is responsible for the giant wall art at my local Middle Earth themed pub ‘The Hobbit’ in Southampton. (You may have heard about the legal battle with Saul Zaentz. The pub, told to change the name it had been using for over 20 years, was backed by Stephen Fry describing the action as “pointless, self-defeating bullying” and Sir Ian McKellen stating the demand by Zaentz was “unnecessary pettiness”.)

The murals decorate the large pub gardens and add to the atmosphere.

It’s not all about Lord of the Rings for Kitchener though he creates many fantasy scenes and I like his night scenes (see below)
